WA National Disability Insurance Scheme
What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme or NDIS is a way to help people with disability get care and supports. The NDIS also helps families and carers with information and support services to help care for people with disability.
Am I Eligible for the NDIS?
If you are a person with disability and want to join the NDIS, you need to meet access requirements. Some of these include: availability of the Scheme where you live; your age; your residency status; your disability and in some cases your early intervention requirements. More information about accessing the NDIS can be found here.
Future of NDIS in WA
In December 2017, the Commonwealth and Western Australian governments agreed that WA will join the nationally delivered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). This replaces the previous agreement signed in January 2017 for WA to administer the NDIS. This means from 1 July 2018, the NDIA will be responsible for the delivery of the NDIS in WA. The NDIS will then continue to roll out on a geographic basis across WA, with the roll out concluding by 2020.
